The Estonian coastline is more than 4,000 km long, which makes this country a great place for kayaking and canoeing. It has more than 1,500 islands, and many of them are home to bird and seal colonies. Thus, paddling can be even more exciting. You can go through sandy beaches or ancient fishermen islets.

The most famous places for kayakers are the Saaremaa and Hiiumaa islands, where you'll be surrounded by beautiful scenery. Tallinn Bay will open a Medieval city silhouette. Some shorter trips can be made to the islands off the north coast such as Aegna, Pakri islands, and Pedassaare. The best time for kayaking is summer, from June to August. However, during the nesting period (15 April-15 July) you won't be able to visit protected areas without special permission.
